Good as WD blue?

Seems much better. 1144 on Hard Drive Benchmark Vs. only 745 for the WD Blue.

Bought couple of items few months back. No issues with any of the rebates. Same experiences from my coworkers.
Same here. Never had a problem with Tiger Direct rebates. You just have to read and follow directions. Simple enough!

I agree 100%. Rebates from TD are a waste of time.
I have to disagree. I have only made two purchases from TD -- both included rebates. Here are my results:

Never buy from Tigerdirect. Especially rebate items. This company has an awful reputation. Don't take my word for it, go to Google and do some research.
I've only tried one Tiger Direct related rebate - for the Samsung 830 256gb SSD last month - $154 after rebate. I got the confirmation email a few days ago that my rebate had been approved, and the rebate card will arrive in a few weeks.

On a related note, in college I did some phone based tech support for tape/CD backup drives. The amount of user error was incredible. We had to start each call first asking the user, if he/she had plugged the power cord for the drive into the wall, because of how many people thought the drive got power from the data cable, lol. So, while I am not claiming all rejected rebates are the fault of the buyer, given the frequency humans manage to screw things up, it would not surprise me if a good many are human error. I wonder how many people simply fail to sign and date the form, or cut out the wrong bar code?

Not bad. I would have used that Rakuten coupon on something else if I'd known I could get a 1TB drive for the same price a few days later.

I used to have bad impressions for TD. However, in the past a few years, I don't see any issue with them any more. I would feel pretty comfortable to buy from them now.

Hmm...seems like a good deal on the Toshiba but I've never had them before. I've always bought WD and/or Seagate. Wonder if I should take a chance even though waiting for a rebate kinda sucks.

Having to cancel my order through the phone is the only thing that annoys me about Tigerdirect.

TD ships the drive with no protection, except the outside box.
I was shocked when I saw my HD, and yeah, had to RMA it (DOA), and pay shipping back.
Never again.

Good warning.

Also, for those who don't know...Returns or RMAs are not accepted by retailers if the UPC has been removed. Test your hard drive BEFORE you do your rebate.

True, but the manufacturer warranty is still valid. Not that big of a deal.

I don't know if I would consider the 1 TB Toshiba a deal. I have not purchased anything from TigerDirect in years (their return policy is often less-than-desirablevomit). Amazon has an equivalent WD Blue for $66 everyday price. WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX.

Happy shopping.

People who still complain about TD rebates are still living in the way way past. Yes, they were bad 3 or 4 years ago and before that. But I have received all 10 rebates I submitted in the last 2 years, each within 6 weeks of submission, some as quick as 3 weeks. I usually get AMEX gift cards and I use them at Costco or buy GC at Amazon. Just follow the rebate instructions exactly and you're fine; for example, all TD rebates require you to cut the shipping address label at the bottom of the filled printout form to be used on your envelope; don't ask why, just do it and you'll always get your rebate.

With Amazon charging taxes to CA, I find most of my electronics deals at TD.
